Geoffrey Michael Krawczyk

Born in Oklahoma to a Vietnam veteran, Geoffrey Michael Krawczyk grew up in close proximity to the violence and sacrifice required by war. “My work is an exploration of the mythology of spirituality, the politics of aesthetics, and the connections between sacred and profane,” says Krawczyk. His series, “Passages,” was most recently shown at Artspace Gallery in Buffalo, New York, where he now resides.

Chris Duncan

Duncan_Everything_All_At_Once_print

Chris Duncan is a fabulous Oakland based artist that I have had the pleasure of spending some time with over the past year. His installations, performance, drawing, painting, book making, sculpture and print-work are not only ambitious, but easy to get lost in, and most importantly, totally gorgeous! One of the hardest working artist in the game.

Andreas Fischer

Andreas Fischer’s “Ghost Town” is currently on view in our lovely city of Chicago. Ghost Town, which is on view at two separate venues, Hyde Park Art Center and The Gahlberg Gallery, shows us two distinct selections of Andreas’s portraiture and imagined landscapes. There is a nice anonymous quality to these ¬†locations and figures, with titles like “Original Location” and “Sunday Best”. Plus, the work actually becomes more engaging after you read about it, which in my opinion, is often not the case.
